House Mouse Monday Challenge #110 "New"

Here is to a 2012 full of new ideas, new friends, and new dreams!  After a little break, the team over at the House Mouse Monday site is back with a new challenge, literally.   The theme is "New", and since it sounds like there will be many new babies coming into the world this year, I took this time to start on my stash.


My base is a creamy oak tag layered with sheets of embossed designer papers.  The one is a metallic which I have hoarded for years.  If I am not mistaken, they are from K&Co, as are the diecut flowers running down the side.  I embellished them with pearls.  My House Mouse stamp is one that I won with one of the hops.  It is called "A Birdie Told Me".  So glad I got to use this cutie.  I colored with Copics, and added a sentiment to an SU! punch.  The sky was created with a scallop cut out and sponging some VersaMagic ink.

That's it for me today.  I think I will be going into work!  It is suppose to be bitter cold, so I best hit the shower and dry out before I leave.  Have a great day!

Excellent idea on how to make the sky! I have a cloud template for sponging, but do you think I can ever find it? Great card!
